Abstract: The title compound, C23H24O3, was obtained in a one-step (60% yield) synthesis from 1,1,1-tris(hydroxymethyl)ethane. It features a tripodal ligand capable of complexing metal centres. One of the three conformations involving the methyl group, the central C-C bond and the phenoxy substituents is antiperiplanar while the two others are synclinal [the corresponding C-C-C-O torsion angles are -174.6 (1), -53.2 (2) and -47.3 (2)°]. In the crystal, C-H...O inter­actions link the molecules into [010] chains.
